Today, International Youth Day is celebrated around the world to recognise the potential of youth as active partners in global society. Youth have decided at the ECOSOC Youth Forum 2021 (EYF): This year's Youth Day is themed ""Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health".

This is to highlight the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on human health, the environment and food systems. They emphasised the need for young people to make informed food choices by learning more about the healthiest and most sustainable options for individuals and the environment worldwide. (cf. UN.Org)

Through our Play Fair for the Environment programme, we raise awareness among youth about the responsible use of natural resources and the impact of pollution on the human body and the environment.
Heute wird auf der ganzen Welt der Internationale Tag der Jugend gefeiert, um das Potenzial der Jugend als aktive Partner in der globalen Gesellschaft zu würdigen. Die Jugend hat beim ECOSOC-Jugendforums 2021 (EYF) entschieden: Der diesjährige Jugendtag steht unter dem Motto ""Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health"".

Damit soll auf die Auswirkungen der COVID-19-Pandemie auf die menschliche Gesundheit, die Umwelt und die Lebensmittelsysteme hingewiesen werden. Sie betonten die Notwendigkeit, dass junge Menschen fundierte Entscheidungen bei der Auswahl von Lebensmitteln treffen, indem sie weltweit mehr über die gesündesten und nachhaltigsten Optionen für den Einzelnen und die Umwelt lernen. (vgl. UN.Org)

Mit unseren ""Play Fair for the Environment""-Umweltprogrammen sensibilisieren wir die Jugend für einen bewussten Umgang mit natrülichen Ressourcen und für die Auswirkungen von Umweltverschmutzung auf den menschlichen Körper und die Umgebung.

The excitement at Talfalah Primary School in Manenberg was palpable this morning, when alumni of the class of 1982 in relation with Lace Up for Change (LU4C) donated 20 Mecer tablets, several loaves of bread, party packs and a warm meal to the students of the school. LU4C Ambassador, Faizel Jacobs expressed his joy in being able to invest in the future of scholars.

However, for ex-student at Talfalah, Zoghra Potgieter the initiative started with the thought of giving back to the institution that molded her into the woman she has turned into.

“It is truly a joyous occasion to be able to give back and support such thriving minds. It is our civic duty to ensure that our communities are sustainable and against all odds produce sterling students,” smiled Potgieter.
